The second church in Marblehead was gathered and Mr. Edward Holyoke ordained 
pastor, 25 April, 1716. 

Marblehead was set off from SaJem in 1649. At that date there were forty-four 
families settled there. Mr. William Walton preached at Marblehead until his death in 
1668. He was a resident there on November, 1638. Mr. Samuel Cheever took up his work 
immediately and continued in the ministry till his death, 29 May, 1729. [Felt.]

The republication, by the New England Historical Genealogical 
Society, in 1901, of Henry F. Waters' Gleanings from English 
Jiretmls, in two large volumes, signalized the completion of his active 
work among English records : a result chiefly brought about by the 
failure of financial contributions to carry on the work. 
The resumption of the publication of Mr. Waters' Gleanings is 
< to the willingness of Mr. Lothrop Withington, the present 
. « :<xhan of Mr. Waters' immense collection of notes, to devote 
without compensation a portion of his time to the arrangement of the 
km moranda for the printer. This action by Mr. Withington justifies 
Mr. Waters' decision to leave his notes in England temporarily, where 


v.-y would be of the most value to Americans making genealogical 
n March among the English archives. 

More than twenty thousand, probably double that number, of 
Inferences to wills and administrations gathered by Mr. Waters in 
fHsrly twenty years' active genealogical labors in England remain 
unyniblished. These notes mainly cover a period from 1500 to 1660, 
fly the sixty years preceding the latter date, and are from the 
rseordsof the Prerogative Court of Canterbury ; the records of lesser j 

j-ohnte courts, also deposited at Somerset House; from the Suffolk 
RguttrieB, and other sources. 

Toe gleanings published in the Register were largely, if not wholly, 
' lections made because of their mention of residents or colonists in 
America, or that they illustrated the pedigree of families from which 
Americans derive descent. But these selections by no means ex- 
isted the direct references to America in the collection, which 
***0 abounds with abstracts of wills showing the ramifications of 
' ttionships of American families of early date in England. 

J nc alphabetical arrangement has been adopted in the present 

*tm»s as providing the most convenient and exhaustive method of 

sing the unpublished notes available. Abstracts of wills, etc., 

Mready in print are simply referred to, enabling the searcher to turn 

: ctly to the printed volume and page. It has always been a ques- 

tto and of great importance, in using the published gleanings, as to

what extent the material printed exhausted the material in hand. 
The present series will enable the genealogical student to determine 
this point and, it is hoped, greatly aid in the work of genealogical 
research in England. 

It is fitting in this place to state briefly the history of Mr. Waters' 
connection with this great work of genealogical research which the 
Hon. Marshall P. Wilder, in his presidential address to the New Eng- 
land Historic Genealogical Society in 1884, described as "a new 
departure in historical research." He predicted, without any adequate 
realization of the great successes in store for Mr. Waters, the benefits 
which would arise from systematic work. At that time Mr. Waters had 
but just begun upon his labors in behalf of the society, labors which 
were prosecuted for sixteen years under the gravest difficulties, often 
under almost overpowering discouragements, and at the expense of 
health. So signal were the discoveries made by Mr. Waters during 
the first five years of these investigations — including the finding of 
the Winthrop map, the Maverick MS., the ancestry of John Harvard, 
of Roger Williams, of John Rogers, and a year later of Washington 
— , that, in 1888, Mr. Goodell, in his presidential address, said "no 
one thing in the whole career of our society has reflected more credit 
upon the enterprise of its managers, and been fruitful of results 
more brilliant and startling and more full of promise to the historian 
and genealogist, than the discoveries which have been made in Eng- 
land by Mr. Waters." 

American genealogists had long been aware, from the results of the 
efforts of Somerby, Chester, Savage and others, of the great mass 
of undigested material buried in the English archives and courts. 
In 1879 Dr. James A. Emmerton, in company with his friend Mr. 
Waters, spent much time at Somerset House collecting information 
relating chiefly to Salem families, which was printed in the Essex 
Institute Historical Collections for 1880, vol. xvn. It was known 
that to Mr. Waters, was due the credit for the systematic method of 
those investigations which yielded so many suggestions concerning 
the English home of New England settlers. 

A few far sighted and enthusiastic members of the New England . 
Historic Genealogical Society, especially Mr. John T. Hassam,* who 

•Just as we go to pi-ess we learn of the death of Mr. Hassam, which occurred April 
2*2. He was born in Boston, Sept. 20, 1841. He had an honorable record as a soldier and 
lawyer. As an antiquary and genealogist he had few equals. It was due to his efforts 
that much-needed reforms in the care of records preserved by the Common wealth and 
county of Suffolk were effected, and it was he who brought about the present plan of 
indexing the Suffolk deeds, several volumes of which have been printed under his 
direction, and on this work he was engaged at the time of his death. 


Waters' Genealogical Researches. 35 

fpr nine 'years served as chairman of the Committee on English 
|?r*es*rch, conceived the idea of employing Mr. Waters, in behalf of 
l&at society, to prosecute a systematic investigation among English 


Sufficient interest was aroused to enable the plan to be carried out, 
t**d Mr. Waters, in May, 1883, proceeded to London, which was to 
he bis home for more than seventeen years. 

In 1886, Mr Waters' connection as an agent of the society ceased? 
Uil his contributions to the Register continued without intermission 
*v«a during a period of severe illness. During these years and until 
im$2 Mr. Hassam was chairman of the committee. He was succeeded 
by Mr. W. S. Appleton, who retired upon the completion of Mr. 
Waters' work in 1899.* To these two gentlemen and to Mr. James 
J. Goodwin, especially the latter, is due the credit of meeting the 

joy difficulties and bridging over the financial collapses which 
occurred during this period. 

From 1886 to 1898, work of raising funds for the maintenance of 
•, work and for printing the Gleanings rested entirely with the 
Committee on English Research which had the broad powers necessary 
k) the successful management of so important an undertaking. 

The original committee, appointed in 1883, consisted of John T. 
fia&san), James W. Austin and John Ward Dean ; and during the 
period of Mr. Waters' contributions to the Register numbered among 
iU members, besides the above, William S. Appleton, Frank L. Bradish, 
I r&Qcis E. Blake, James J. Goodwin, Thomas Wentworth Higginson' 
HuUert C. Winthrop, jr., and Eben Putnam. 

Mr. Waters has returned to New England and abandoned almost 

wttirely his genealogical studies, although he retains a lively interest 

fa the discoveries which are being made along the paths he blazed. 

Hie publication of the unpublished part of his collection meets with 

hearty appreciation and is due to his generous permission to make 

<- results of his work available to the public. All genealogical 
*'• '* dents who sought his advice and encouragement when personally 
conducting investigations in England, will join the writer in testifying 
*« the debt owed to Mr. Waters. The writer, himself, cannot close 
*« note without making his acknowledgment of the many courtesies 
extended to him by Mr. Waters at various times when pursuing 
■ oealogical investigations in England.

(t) herewith who gave their approbation. They 
Allso Sent to all y e neighboring Chh s for their Elders 
to give y r assistance at acertain day at Newtowne 
when y v Should Constitute that body- Accordingly 
at this day there met a great afsembly where y e pro- 
ceeding was as followeth : M r Shepard & two others 
(who were after to be chof 3ii to office) sat together 
in y e Elder's Seat : Then y Q Elder of them began 
with prayer : after this M r Shepard prayed with deep 
confefsion of Sin &c. and Exercised out of Eph. 5. 
That he might make us to him a hol} r &c. and allso 
opened y e cause of y e Meeting, &c. Then y e Elder 
defired to know of y e Chlr : afsembled, what number 
were necdfull to make a Chh, and how they ought to 
proceed in this action.

because by Matth. 18. an appeal was allowed to be 
made from three : but that 7 might be a fitt number

to join, Should make Confefsion of their faith & 
declre what work of Grace y e Lord had wrought in 
them. Which accordingly they did M r Sh. firft then 
4 others ; then v e Elder & one who was to be a dea- 
con (who had alfo prayed) and another member. 
Then y e Covenant was read and they all gave a 
Solemn afsent to it. Then y e Elder defired of y e 
Churches, that if they did approve them to be a

with fome others near him) in y e name of the 
Churches, Gave his hand to the Elder, with a fhort 
fpeech of their affent, and deiired y e Peace of the

Then M 1 ' Shepard made an Exhortation to y e reft J 

of this Body about y e nature of their Covenant and to 
ftand firm to it and commended them to y e Lord in a 
most heavenly Prayer. 

Then y e Elder told y e afsembly that they were In-

name of y c Brother who (had) Exercised.) & defired 
y e churches that if they had anything to except 
again ft him they would impart it before y e day of or-

afsiftance & so left Them to v e Lord.

South Britain Sketches and Records, by W. C. Sharpe, 
Seymour, 1898. pp. 167. 

The author of this useful volume deserves encouragement in his 
work of putting into print the various town and church records within 
his reach. The cost of publication of such books is rarely met till 
the entire edition has been sold. The South Britain book contains 
sketches of the pioneers of the town, genealogies of the principal 
families, and transcripts of the town and church records, all dating 
from pre-revolutionary times. 

Society of Colonial Wars in the State of Minnesota. 
Register of Members and Ancestors. 1901. 8 vo, pp. 553, illus- 

The Minnesota society was organized, chiefly through the efforts of 
Messrs. Hurd, Whipple and Noyes, in 1895, and at the time this 
register was published had nearly one hundred and fifty members, 
whose personal records and lines of ancestry appear in this volume. 

More than 5500 individuals are mentioned in the pedigrees printed. 
The services conferring eligibility in descendants are concisely yet 
fully described. More than one hundred pages are devoted to 
biographical notices of the more important personages mentioned in 
the book, each biography being by a different writer. The Pine 
Tree and Rattlesnake flags of the Revolution are pictured in proper 

The secretary, Wm. Gardner White, Esq., and committee having 
charge of the publication of this register are to be congratulated in 
producing a valuable reference book aside from its local interest. 
Taken in connection with the lately published register of the General 
Society which it very largely supplements, there may be found a 
great store of information. 

A few copies are offered for sale. 

Rodney P. Wright, 6 Granite street, Cambridge, Mass., has in 
preparation a history of the Wright family comprising the English

alogical review of many of his descendants.

SS Book Notes. 



as in press "Abstracts Historical, Genealogical and Topographical 
of Wills in The Prerogative Court of Canterbury at Somerset House, 
London, England. Register Soame, 1620." Edited by J. Henry 
Lea. The Calendars, or Indexes, to the Testators in the Prerog- 
ative Court wills, from the earliest registration in 1383, issued by 
the British Record Society, are designed to reach and include the 
year 1619. And it is proposed to issue concise, but absolutely ex- 
haustive, abstracts of the Wills contained in Register Soame, 1620, 
the Pilgrim year. If support of this publication permits, Register 
Dale, 1621, and succeeding years, will be undertaken. This work 
is the outgrowth of Mr. Henry F. Waters' splendid discoveries in 
his well-known " Gleanings," formerly contributed to the New Eng. 
Historic Genealogical Register and continued in the Genealogical 
Quarterly Magazine. Mr. Lea designs to take the wills in chrono- 
logical order in the Register book, abstracting from them every vital 
fact, every name of person or place, and printing them with a 
complete index to the wills by number. This first volume of what 
promises to be a most valuable and useful series will contain, in 
about 650 pages, some 1360 wills, comprising about 20,000 names of 
persons and over 8,000 of places. Even at that early date, there are 
many references to America. The subscription price will be $5.00 
(delivery extra). 



Histories and Genealogies of the Hammond Families in Amer- 
ica. With an account of the Early History of the Family in Nor- 
mandy and Great Britain, 1000-1902, Vol. 1. By Frederick S. 
Hammond, Oneida, 1902. 8vo. 

The compiler of this useful book has incorporated in the present 
volume material illustrating the ancestry beyond seas of all of the 
Hammond families whose connection with the English homes can be 
traced. The remainder of the book relates to the families of the 
name settled in Watertown, Rowley, Ipswich, Medfield, Gloucester, 
Marblehead, and Rehoboth, Mass., to the Essex County and Bristol 
County families in general, and to the Hammonds of Rhode Island 
and some minor branches, leaving to appear in the second volume 
the important branch of the family settled in Maine and some other 
interesting groups. 

The author suggests as a possible origin of some of the Rhode 
Island Hammonds that descendants of Nathan Hayman of Bristol 
may have changed their name to Hammond. This is not probable. 


These Haymaus were originally a Charlestown family, coming from 
Bristol, England, and descendants arc chiefly in the female lines. 

The book shows great care and represents many years of labor. 
It is well printed and a credit to all concerned in its production.

'New England's Prospect, William Wood, Boston, 18B5, p. 2. 

*New England Rarities, John Josselyn, Boston, MDCCCLXV, p. 4 et 



That quaint author, William Wood, writing of New England in 
1632, informs us that it "is judged by those w T ho have best skill in 
discovery, either to be an Hand, surrounded on the North-side with 
the spacious River Cannada, and on the South with Hudson's River, 
or else a Peninsula, these two Rivers overlapping one another, hav- 
ing their rise from the great Lakes." 1 John Josselyn, who followed 
Wood, gives a similar description of New England as it then was. 
He tells us that it "is by some affirmed to be an Island, bounded on 
the North by the River Canada (so called from Monsieur Cane), on 
the South with the River Mohegan or Hudson's River, so called be- 
cause he was the first discoverer of it." 2 

A brief examination of these bounds reveals to us why it was 
"affirmed to be an Island" by those limited to the geographical 
knowledge of their day, and we no longer wonder when we find 
communications from British ministers directed "To the Governor 
of the Island of New England." As a matter of fact, those who 






90 New England. [July 

Wood says "judged" it to be a "Peninsula" were right, for the 
tract of country then known as New England was in truth a pen- 
insula. Of its situation geographically, Capt. John Smith, a con- 
temporary of Wood and Josselyn, complacently remarks that it lies 
within "the very meane for heat and cold, betwixt the Equinoctiall, 
and the North Pole," 3 a statement which he intended should make 
it apparent that it was a country especially desirable for habitation, 
and we, who have knowledge of it for more than two and a half cen- 
turies beyond this enthusiastic adventurer, are able to affirm that in 
this case he took none too partial a view of the favored region, 
which he so lavishly extolled. 

Looking now at the New England of Smith's day, it is indeed a 
peculiar country, both geographically and topographically. Tt stands 
apart by itself with an individuality of its own, which properly en- 
titled it to the honor of bearing the name of its royal mother. It 
opposes a coast line of more than seven hundred miles, not reckon- 
ing its indentations, to the restless waters of the Atlantic, while its 
northerly, westerly and southerly borders with the exception of a 
comparatively narrow space, are laved by the waters of the St. Law- 
rence, the Hudson, and the connecting waters of lakes George and 
Champlain. Sloping gradually inland from the sea, the land rises 
in billowy swells till it meets, at an average elevation of about five 
hundred feet, the Appalachian Chain, comprising the Green and 
outlying ranges of the White and Adirondack mountains, and ex- 
tending from the St. Lawrence southerly until it is abruptly broken 
within less than fifty miles from the seacoast. This immense 
mountain range, while attaining no extraordinary altitude, maintains 
a remarkable uniformity of outline, ridge following ridge in almost 
parallel courses for long distances like the successive billows of the 
sea, and forming valleys of strikingly uniform width, which dis- 
tribute by numberless water courses the waters which they gather 
over the lands lying between them and the sen. It has been said 
that the more than seven hundred miles of coast line are embraced 
by the sea, but the eager Atlantic, reaching up the Hudson and the 
St. Lawrence, caresses its lovely slopes for upwards of six hundred 
miles more. It will be seen by the description of this peninsula that 
it comprises an area of rolling land on its seaward side unbroken by 
hills of great magnitude, extending from the St. Lawrence to the 
mouth of the Hudson, and sloping from continuous mountain ranges

physical conformation determine its climatk >nditions and exercise 



an important influence upon its inhabitar x 

The New England of today, with which we have particularly to 
do, occupies the heart of the New England of Smith's time, and ex- 
tends from latitude 41° to 47° 32' north, and from longitude 66° 52' 
to 73° 50' west, with an area of 68,460 square miles, comprising the 
states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode 
Island and Connecticut. Of this area Maine occupies a little more 
than half, and each of the other states about the following propor- 
tions, viz : New Hampshire one seventh ; Vermont one sixth ; Mass- 
achusetts one eighth ; Connecticut one thirteenth ; and Rhode Island 
one fifteenth. It slopes in a general direction towards the south 
and west, but the uneven character of its surface compels the many 
streams, which abundantly water it, to flow towards almost every 
point of the compass. Thus the Housatonic, which springs into be- 
ing among the Green Mountains ; the Connecticut, the Kennebec 
and Penobscot, whose sources are in the highlands, which, extending 
along the northern borders of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, 
are the nursery of many important streams, flow towards the south, 
while their tributaries often flow easterly and westerly as well as in 
northerly courses. The diversity of surface, which causes the waters 
to seek so many channels of escape to the sea, has proved its im- 
portance to the prosperity of the entire peninsula, not only to civil- 
ized man who inhabits it today, but to savage man who preceded 
him, whose life must have been affected by the conditions existing 
therein, though in a different manner from that of his successor. 

It has been said, that given the geographical and topographical 
status of some portion of the earth's surface, it might be possible 
for a mind possessing only the limited knowledge of our day, but 


with powers of observation and analysis of a high order, such for 
instance as have been ascribed to a Sherlock Holmes, to determine 
with considerable accuracy the nature of its fauna, and to give a 
shrewd guess as to the more important characteristics of its native 
inhabitants. The sagacious Agassiz, who was able from a single 
bone to reconstruct a fish, has left us an interesting chart wherein 
is shown that each distinctive type of mankind is associated with a 
peculiar fauna. The negro has about him the chimpanzee, the ele- 
phant, the rhinoceros, the hippopotamus, the wart-hog, and the 
giraffe ; the Esquimaux, the white bear, the walrus, the reindeer, 
the harp seal, the right whale and the eider duck. It is true that

some animals have a wider habitat than the race with which they are 
at present associated, but this does not furnish sufficient ground for 
discrediting the positiou assumed. 

No matter what our theory may be with respect to the origin 
of races, it is quite certain that climate and environment exert 
a considerable influence upon men as well as animals, indeed upon all 
organic life. The littoral man, exposed to extremes of temperature, 
who wriugs a bare subsistence from the stormy sea and its sterile 
shores unfriendly to vegetation, will show in process of time marked 
physical and intellectual differences from the pastoral man of the same 
race, who dwells in fruitful vales amid his flocks and herds, unvexed 
by care for the morrow's subsistence. The people who were found 
here in New England by our ancestors, though they may not have 
been aboriginal, had many traits which distinguished them from 
southern and western tribes to whom they undoubtedly bore genetic 
relations, traits which grew out of their environment. The unfertile 
nature of a considerable portion of its soil, its climate, so rigorous 
for several months of the year, subject to sharp fluctuations of 
temperature, with extremes in some portions of forty below to 
one hundred degrees of Fahrenheit above zero, compel activity. 
The savage man, to live under such conditions, w r as forced to hunt 
and fish, and above all, to till the earth and exercise forethought in 
preserving a supply of food for the season of dearth, as well as the 
civilized man who has taken his place. He could not bask in 
continual sunshine and gather the fruits of the earth for nearly the 
entire year like his brother of the south or southwest, but must 
get furs and food for the protection and sustenance of himself and 
those dependent upon him during the long period of want which al- 
ways came. Even the spirit of manufacture was active in New Eng- 
land before the advent of the Yankee, for the Narragansetts made 
and trafficked in Indian notions with their neighbors, and earned 
thereby a reputation hardly second to their successors, who, it is 
said, trafficked in wooden nutmegs. Whether the rasping air which 
blows so persistently upon the New England coast sharpens the wits 
of its inhabitants, as has been humorously suggested, is a question 
beyond our powers of solution. With respect however to the in- 
fluence of environment upon men, the late Thomas Gold Appleton, 
who was a careful student of Art, carried the theory so far as to 
declare to me that an American engraver, domiciled in England, 
could not produce an engraving in which a quick and well trained 
eye would not detect an English influence. American engravers, he 


1903] JVew England. 93 

said, had stated to him that they were unable to produce precisely 
the same kind of work in Europe that they had produced in America. 
Mrs. Browning recognizes the influence of uvironment when she 

"O give me men from the sudless plain, 
Said the South to the North ; 
Who ever by work in the snow and the rain 
Grow strong and brave by familiar pain, 
Said the South to the North." 


It may not be perhaps too much to affirm that the people of no other 
portion of the United States exhibit in so marked a degree the 
influences of environment as the people of New England. The men 
who first landed upon its frozen shores found themselves at once in 
the midst of conditions which taxed to the utmost every faculty which 
they possessed, and compelled them to put forth all their powers to 
sustain themselves. Not only had they to be constantly on the 
alert to repel attacks from a savage foe, and to prevent infringe- 
ment upou their religious and civil freedom by powerful opponents, 
but to win their subsistence from an ungenerous soil, and, withal, 
to construct a political fabric sufficient for thtir constantly increas- 
ing needs. The greatest energy, the keenest foresight, the strictest 
economy were continually demanded, and these became to them and 
their successors, who were obliged to exercise them, a second nature. 
This accounts for New England push and thrift, which have charac- 
terized the New Englander of the past and equally characterize him 
today. Not only has he felled the forests of New England, forced 
her streams into useful service and adorned her with noble cities and 
prosperous towns, but his adventurous spirit has impelled him to 
push out beyond her limits, and journey where you will on this 
broad continent you will find the man of New England foremost in 
enterprise and achievement. You may say that he is close and cal- 
culating, perhaps cold and exacting, but you only fail to understand 
his point of view. He has learned in the hard school of experience 
that economy and foresight, cool deliberation and insistence upon 
rights, are essentials of success ; hence he employs them as the 
skilled artificer employs his tools, to achieve a desired end. To him 
education, or in other words, the training of every faculty to useful 
service, is a dogma to which he holds with a tenacity which fire 
cannot loosen. 

While he has succeeded so remarkably in the industrial field, he 


94 New England, [July 

has not failed in others, for the qualities which have distinguished 
him in this field have proved equally potent wherever they have been 
brought into play. To Literature, to Art, to State craft, to the Bar, to 
Medicine, to the Pulpit, to Oratory and to Science, New England has 
given a galaxy so brilliant that the light thereof will illumine the 
century to come with an effulgence which today we imperfectly realize. 
Perhaps we should hardly expect that a climate so changeful and often 
so rigorous would produce great singers. Music, we have been told, 
finds its fitting birthplace in a land of luxurious ease, amid sunshine 
and flowers ; and yet New England has produced a Nordica, an 
Eames, a Carey and many others, who have rivalled the sweetest 
singers of Italy. Who can doubt that the New England idea was 
an important factor in developing the genius of these queens of 
song, that their inherited faith that the loftiest heights of success 
may be attained through persistent and wisely directed labor, has 
been to them a sufficient inspiration? At the same time, we must 
not lose sight of the fact that Art finds in New England scenery a 
beauty unsurpassed by any on the globe. Her splendid mountains 
and hills, her impetuous rivers forcing their way through rocky 
barriers, or coursing tranquilly through blooming meadows ; her 
craggy shores and wide beaches washed by the ever restless Atlantic ; 
her trackless forests and verdant valleys, and her ever changing 
skies, furnish a sufficient inspiration to the artistic sense. 

From this brief and imperfect consideration of what the New 
Englander is, let us observe what he has accomplished. When the 
early colonists landed on the New England shores, they found before 
them a wild country covered with great forests, the lair of savage 
animals and savage men. Wherever they turned the prospect was the 
same, and it required more than brave hearts and abundant muscle to 
enable them to face the discouraging task which they saw they had 
before them. They had, fortunately for their descendants, faith, 
that divine flame which kindles into action the dullest souls ; a faith 
sufficient for all trials, and they entered cheerfully upon their task. 
They paid little heed to the discouragements which were ever con- 
fronting them, but fixed their eyes upon a future, far away it is true, 
but ever bright. As one of them said, though " they saw the grime 
& grisly face of povertie coming upon them like an armed man, with 
whom they must buckle & incounter, and from whom they could 
not flye ; they were armed with faith and patience against him, and 
all his encounters; and though they were sometimes foyled, yet by 




New England. 


God's assistance they prevailed and got ye victorie." 4 With them it 
was a common remark, "Brown bread and the Gospel is good fare. "5 
Such were the first New England men. Of course their first care 
was to provide shelter for their families, then to clear land and 
plant it. Game and fish were near at hand. Having established 
themselves in the new land they began to realize that it possessed 
resources beyond their expectations and they thought to develop 
them. Just here they found their limitations. They were colonists, 
and colonists whose limitations they found were mercilessly defined. 
Our modern definition of a colony w r as unknown to the British 
statesman of that period, who clung with an obstinacy, which has 
made British statesmanship so successful, to the idea of the Roman, 
whose code he had adopted,that a colony was a possession of the 
governing state ; in fact, a piece of property to be carried ou as a 
business enterprise solely for her own benefit ; thus but little regard 
was to be paid to the rights of the colonists, whose duty it was to 
labor for the prosperity of the governing state. This was very 
different from the Greek conception of a colony, which was more 
like the modern idea, that a colony is a commonwealth having in- 
dependent privileges and the right of local government. Thus when 
Athens upon a time affirmed her authority over colonies in the Hel- 
lenic league, the act was regarded as a tyrannical abuse of power. 
These Greek colonies, says Professor Seeley, were like " grown up 
children who have married and settled at a distance ;" 6 yet while Eng- 
land was called the mother country, and was pleased with the 
perm, she was not at all favorable to the Greek idea and practice, but 
preferred to rule the occupants of the new homestead and make 
them wholly subservient to her own ^terests. It is not strange 
that we soon hear a discordant note. Royal governors were set 
over the colonies, swelling with the plenipotentiality of the royal 
prerogative. Said one of them in a burst of loyalty, "Every Act of 
dependent Provincial government ought to terminate in the advantage 
)f the Mother state unto which it owes its being," and he continues 
'The Colonies are to be only considered as so many Corporations at 
\ distance invested with ability to make temporary Bye Laws for 
hemselves agreeable to their respective situations — but noways

interfering with the legal prerogative of the Crown." 7 Every attempt 
of the colonies to better their condition was interfered with, and an 
irrepressible conflict was the result. The prerogative became as 
fruitful a topic of discussion and as agitating in its way as the ques- 
tion of slavery later. Governor Shute almost made himself ridicu- 
lous in his use of the word in his frequent communications to the 
Lords of Trade, underscoring resolves passed by the Representatives 
with the words "Strooke att the Prerogative." 8 Trade and manu- 
factures were strangled at their birth. If an attempt to build a ship 
was made by the colonists the shipwrights of the River Thames, 
petitioned the Lords' Commissioners to stop it, as it menaced their 
trade. 9 If they attempted to use their wool in making cloth, the cloth 
staplers at once raised their voices in protest. 10 They were watched 
with jealous eyes. Bridger, an agent of the government, wrote to 
the Lords of Trade, "I have observed that there is not the quantity 
of Woollens exported from England as usual which must proceed from 
this Trade of making their own cloth in New England," and "there 
are now entered 155 Doz of Wooll Cards." 11 The question whether 
wool cards could be exported legally from England to New England 
was laid before the law officer of the Crown, who settled the question 
by calling attention to the fact that there was an export duty upon 
them, which implied that exportation was legal. Two years later 
Bridger wrote, ''The Contrey people or planters are Entered so far 
into the making their own Woollens that not one in 40 but wares 
his own Carding Spinning &c." 12 New England was well situated to 
enlarge this industry. Her extensive pasture lands were adapted to 
sheep raising, and her people were ambitious to improve their condi- 
tion; but English trade might suffer if this were permitted, hence an

act was passed prohibiting the exportation of woollens, and even 
trade between the colonies themselves, which effectually destroyed 
the promising enterprise. 

Great excitement was created by an act forbidding the cutting of 
ft uy trees above a certain size. Royal commissioners were sent into 
the forests to mark all such trees with the King's mark, an act which 
was warmly resented, as it greatly interfered with the lumber industry, 
upon which many relied. The commissioners were ignored, and the 
fact that Elisha Cooke, w r ho was elected speaker of the assembly, 
had the temerity to declare that the timber upon a man's land was his 
private property, was considered a sufficient reason by Governor Shute 
to demand the selection of another man, as he had not shown himself 
sufficiently subservient to the prerogative. The law was so obnoxious 
that it was evaded, and the Lords of Trade, who sustained Shute's 
action in the case of Cooke, ordered stringent measures to be adopted 
to enforce the law. 13 In the remote settlements of Maine the law was 
applied as strenuously as elsew r here, and lumber which had been cut 
down ready to be drawn to the river was seized by the zealous com- 
missioners. Haley wrote the Lords concerning one of these seizures, 
" All imaginary precautions are taken to prevent the Country Rascalls 
from Cutting them in the Night before they are hailed to the water." 14 
In order to save their property, the people he thought would cut the 
trees they had felled into logs, when they would be no longer fit for 
t!>e King's use, though still suitable for lumber. Thus it will be seen 
that England's policy with the colonies was wholly a selfish one. 
Such branches of business as could be made profitable to her were 
encouraged. She needed masts, tar, hemp and pitch, and when she 
could get these commodities in no other way, offered bounties for 
them; but manufacturing -was discouraged, and her Parliament went 
so far as to pass a resolution that the establishment of manufactories 
in the colonies rendered them less dependent upon the Crown, and an 
act was accordingly passed prohibiting the manufacture of iron wares 
of any kind in the colonies, and the erection of forges for making 
" sows, pigs or cast iron into bar or rod iron." A measure so tyran- 
nical could not be sustained, and an onerous export duty took its

place. No opportunity was neglected to restrict the enterprise of 
the New England people. Turn where they would they met with 
disheartening restrictions, and it is not strange that a feeling of 
resentment continually smouldered in their hearts, ready to burst 
forth into flame at a favorable moment. The annals of the time are 
filled with their complaints. One of these, which was laid before 
Parliament, is worthy of notice. After enumerating the constant 
warfare which New England had been compelled to carry on with 
the French and Indians, it said, " From their first arrival to the 
end of the last war, scarce a village was settled but what was broken 
up, once or oftener by the Savages. Men, women and children, whole 
families, villages and towns were murthered scalpt and captivated, 
and their whole substance committed to the flames. — Did they mur- 
mur at being thus oppressed while wholly neglected by the nation? 
Did they grow disaffected to the national interest? The contrary to 
all this was manifested. They loved and revered the nation to a 
degree of excess and enthusiasm. New glory to the Crown, new ac- 
quisitions of territory, happiness and wealth to England were ever as 
much a source of joy to New England as to the nation itself. — Ought 
not the English nation to rest satisfied and content with the same 
kind of service from them as from his Majesty's other subjects? 
They have done as much for the national glory and exulted in it. 
Why then should they not share in the same immunities? At least 
be exempt from the same oppressions? — JDuties and taxes have been 
imposed by the Britisli Parliament ; troops quartered in their capital 
town, Castle William wrested from them, though built, furnished and 
maintained by Massachusetts at their sole expense, without either 
paying for it or promising to do so." 15 These extracts express in 
some degree the state of feeling prevalent among the more thoughtful 
people of New England not long before the Revolution. The oppres- 
sion of the mother country had become unbearable. And yet when 
we impartially consider the commercial policy of the time, we do not 
greatly wonder at England's course. In order to judge fairly of past 
acts, we must carefully consider the influences surrounding the actors. 
It is manifestly unjust to apply our modern standards to them. We 
have only to decide whether they acted according to the light of their 
day. England had been for generations engaged in a great commer- 
cial struggle with the leading nations of Europe, and her one thought 
was to win. Extraordinary privileges were conferred upon her great

trading companies, which soon became potent in influencing legisla- 
tion. To wrest the West India trade from the Dutch who monopo- 
lized it, Parliament in 1651 passed an act that no merchandise, the 
product of Asia, Africa or America, could thereafter be imported into 
England or her dependencies, except in English ' .corns, commanded 
by English officers and manned for the most r ,c by English sailors. 
This in the end proved a serious blow to the 'Dutch carrying trade, 
and increased the commerce of England . 

Still greater aggressions were made upon Spanish commerce and 
no effort was spared to cripple it. Acquiring possession of the 
Bermudas, Barbadoes aud a number of the West India Islands, she 
30on became a dangerous rival ; but France, who had acquired pos- 
sessions adjoining her own, was a constant menace to her growing 
power. To drive her to the wall became the object of her ambition ; 
hence the continual wars with this troublesome enemy, in which the 
New England people suffered so terribly, for war between the mother 
country and France meant for them war with the savages, whom the 
French always turned loose upon the settlers, and who spared neither 
ige nor sex. 16 When England entered upon her commercial war she 
possessed but the shadow of a navy, but in a short time she had ac- 
quired the supremacy of the seas. In her final jonflicts with France, 
which swept French power from the American continent, she was 
aided by New England troops ; in fact, the conquest of Louisburg in 
1 745 was achieved wholly by New England troops. It was claimed 
hat in the final struggle with the French, the colonists sacrificed 
)ver fourteen thousand men ; besides this, their people had been taken 
Tom their employments, so that when victory over the hereditary 
memy of England was achieved, the colonies found themselves utter- 
y impoverished. In this condition, to impose upon them without 
iheir consent a tax to pay for the cost of the war in which they had 
)een the chief sufferers, was more than they could bear, and they 
letermined to submit no longer to the unjust treatment to which the 
nother country had always subjected them. In the light of to-day 
t seems strange that English statesmanship could have been so f atu- 
>us as to alienate such colonists as she possessed in New England ; 
)ut when we consider the terrible struggles in which she was engaged 
or generations with her European rivals, we can see that the great 
nterests involved in them completely overshadowed questions of

mere policy in the government of a few weak colonies on the other 
side of the Atlantic. Moreover, England always placed a low esti- 
mate upon her New England colonists. They were only farmers and 
fishermen, like the stupid peasantry with whom the gentry were con- 
temptuously familiar, and worse than all, dissenters from the estab- 
lished order, which then meant religious cranks. She was wholly 
neglectful of them, and passed such laws as her pushing merchants 
desired, to make them subserve the commercial interests of the 
realm. A few poor adventurers in the wilds of a distant land were 
not to be regarded, and for some time after the war of the Revolution 
broke out, she continued to regard them as rebels, whose subjuga- 
tion would be an easy task. British generals persisted in address- 
ing General Washington as Mister until they were obliged to honor 
him with his proper title. 17 She was in error. The men who fought 
at Bunker Hill bore the same arms, beat Yankee Doodle upon the 
same drums, and blew it through the same fifes which they carried 
at Louisburg, and they jocosely remarked as they marched upon the 
British general's mud fortifications, that they were nothing to the 
stone walls of old Louisburg. More competent men than the New 
Englanders of the Revolution never shouldered a masket. For 
generations they had faced nothing but obstacles, and had come to 
regard them lightly. From boyhood they had been used to the mus- 
ket, and every lad of a dozen years old was a good marksman. 
Surrounded by savage beasts and savage men they were ever alert. 
War was an important part of their occupation, and the English 
officers and soldiers who had fought with them in the French wars 
understood their worth ; but the British ministry had given the 
subject no consideration. It is probable, that the revolt against the 
unbearable oppression of the British Crown would have come much 
sooner than it finally came but for the proximity of the French, who 
kept them so continually employed in repelling the attacks of their 
savage allies. This was recognized by Choiseul after the final 
defeat of the French, whose prophecy was completely fulfilled. 
"The colonies" he said, "stand no longer in need of her protection. 
She will call upon them to contribute towards the burdens which 
they have helped to bring on her, and they will answer by throwing 
off all dependence." Other observers of England's attitude to 
her colonies have also recorded their opinions. Said Montesquieu 
in 173-0, "England will be the first nation abandoned by her col- 

17 Gen'l Gage'8 Letter of Aug. 20, 1775 and enclosure. Public Reeord Oftice, London, 
Author's MS. 


j^q3] New England. 101 

iXiics," and Turgot, comparing the colonies to fruit, said "When they 
tst ripe they will drop from the stem." 

Extracts like this from the Newspaper press show the state of the 
pablic mind: " Great Britain is at this time in possession of every 
advantage that she can possibly avail herself of. By the present laws 
we are not permitted to purchase anything that we want but of her, 
saving salt for fish and a few other minute articles which she has not 
lo sell, and even those manufactures which she cannot furnish from 
her own industry come to us thro' her hands, and taxed, which with 
the profit of the British merchant makes the price intolerable, and 
pach as are of her own growth and manufacture, as we are not at 
liberty to purchase elsewhere, we consequently purchase at her own 
price. Surely it must be confessed by all that Great Britain hath 
the whole profit of our lives and industry. She deals with us upon 
her own terms exclusive of all others, and whether we buy or sell, she 
makes the price." 18 

We have been taught to believe that the issue of the war was for a 
long time doubtful, but such was not the case. The colonies could 
not have been subjugated by the mother country even had she fully 
realized their value, which fortunately she did not, a fact which 
brought the conflict to a termination sooner than it would have been 
otherwise. When the termination of the war permitted the people 
to look about them, they found the prospect gloomy enough. 
Scarcely a home but mourned the loss of a member, and felt in some 
flegree the affliction of poverty ; indeed, we can hardly realize how 
|>oor and bare New England homes were for years after the opening 
of the present century. Said an old lady to her minister who made 
p pastoral call upon her, "The folks about here are growing worldly 
»nd ungodly. Look at the picket fences about their front yards :" 
and the mother of Henry Ward Beecher was reproved by one of her 
husband's deacons for indulging in a rag carpet, as wool was too 
prveious a gift of God to be trampled under foot. After the smoke 
<»f the Revolution cleared away and they began to look about them, 
«»ey saw no industries to which they could turn for support ; the 
«uul, the forest and the sea were all that seemed open to them ; but 
they were free, free from the oppressive acts of a foreign Parliament, 
s »d an odious soldiery who had been quartered upon them so long to 
.ieir great displeasure. We can hardly realize today what the 
w ord liberty meant to those men, hampered and restricted as they

opened wide their doors and offered asylum to the oppressed of every 
land, and over the seas they came, hungering to share the blessings 
which a free Republic vouchsafed to them. It took a few years for 
the people to recover from the scath of war, but economy and indus- 
try were to them a second nature, and about them were natural re- 
sources, which only awaited active brains and deft hands to yield to 
them abundant wealth. It was evident to them that the industrial 
arts which the mother country had so sedulously fostered were as 
necessary to their prosperity as they had proved to be to her, and 
they looked to the promotion of these industries among them as of 
vital importance. But England, who had yielded them political 
freedom, was no whit inclined to permit them to become independent 
of her commercially. Impoverished by the war, with almost no 
skilled mechanics, how could they meet the competition of England, 
ever active and aggressive ? Their very first experience demonstrated 
their inability to do this. The inequality of such a struggle was 
painfully apparent, and their first few industrial undertakings ended 
in disappointment. Says Bancroft, "The prospect of enormous 
gains tempted American merchants to import in one year more tha n 
their exports could pay for in three, while factors of English houses, 
bringing over British goods on British accounts, jostled American 
merchants in their own streets. The people had looked for peace 
and prosperity to come hand in hand, and when hostilities ceased they 
ran into debt for English goods, never doubting that their wonted 
industries would yield them the means of payment as of old. But 
excessive importations atlowprices crushed domestic manufactures." 19

The manufacture of fabrics suitable for clothing was of prime im- 
portance to the people, and England could easily monopolize the 
American markets with her productions of this character. How to 
free themselves from this new bondage was the question of the hour. 
It was a difficult problem to solve. The country had no settled finan- 
cial or commercial policy. Precedents to guide her legislators in 
enacting laws to meet the complicated conditions, to them wholly 
novel, were wanting. They had entered upon an untried field, and 
must inaugurate measures adequate to the occasion. Protection !

protection against English monopoly of the cloth industry, was the 
cry, and on July 2, 1785, the Massachusetts legislature, in accord- 
ance with a scheme formulated by Congress four years before as 
"an indispensable necessity," enacted a law imposing an import duty 
upon foreign manufactures in order to protect her home industries 
from destructive competition. 20 Thus Massachuse' l s led in defence of 
the country's industrial welfare, as she led ; the defence of its 
political liberty. This act proved to be the * ost important piece of 
legislation, economically considered, that has ever been enacted by 
any legislative body in the country, and was the germ of the national 
protective tariff which has enabled the people of this country to 
become independent of foreign manufacturers. 

To show how widespread was the interest taken in home manu- 
factures we should refer to some of the publications of the times. 
Said the Boston Gazette in 1788, "Until we manufacture more, it is 
useless to celebrate the fourth of July as the birthday of our inde- 
pendence. We are still dependent people, and what is worse, after 
the blood and treasure we have expended, we are actually taxed by 
Great Britain. Our imports help to fill her revenue and to pay the 
interest of a debt contracted in an attempt to enslave us," and 
another writer, in 1794, says, "I would remark here, that many 
artists (artisans) who arrive among us fro'n abroad, are in poor 
circumstances, and are unable to set up manufactures for them- 
selves. If such whose knowledge is competent to their profession, 
were assisted by wealthy citizens, they might become very beneficial 
members of society. By such means the various arts practiced in 
Europe, might in process of time be transplanted to America. As 
linens and woolens are very large articles of consumption, and carry 
put of the Commonwealth a large proportion of its specie, it would 
be well to pay attention to fabricating them here. Specimens that 
have been given of linen and woolen cloths made here demonstrate 
that we have manufactures among us who are well skilled in making 
up the materials ; and the number of them will increase by immigra- 
tion from other countries." 21 

The year following the passage of a protective tariff by the State 
of Massachusetts, the first factory for the manufacture of cloth from 
"cotton wool" was erected at East Bridgewater in that state. Two 

10 Pennsylvania followed the example of Massachusetts and passed a similar act on 
Sept. 20th following. 

21 Pelt, Hist, of Ipswich, Essex and Hamilton, Cambridge, 1834, p. 100, et seg., mentions 
;hat the town of Ipswich voted land in 1792 for a woolen mill and two years later en- 
arged its grant for that purpose. 

104 New England. [July 

hundred pounds "of lawful money" were granted by the state to 
encourage this important enterprise. The following year another 
mill was erected at Beverly ; but the machinery within the reach 
of New England manufacturers at this time was cumbersome and 
defective, and the production of cotton cloth was very slow. Great 
efforts were made to obtain plans or models of English machinery, 
especially of the inventions of Richard Arkwright, the Edison of 
his time, but without success, as they were guarded with jealous 
care from the prying eyes of strangers. In 1790, however, Samuel 
Slater, a young man who had worked in Arkwright's mills and care- 
fully studied the master's inventions and methods, erected in Provi- 
dence, R. I., a set of machinery, the plans of which he had brought 
to New England in his head. The improvements thus introduced by 
Slater enabled the New England manufacturers thenceforward to 
compete on more even terms with their foreign competitors. 

The invention of the cotton gin by Eli Whitney in 1793 gave an 
additional impetus to the cotton manufacturing industry, not only in 
New, but in Old England as well. The success of those interested 
in the manufacture of cotton encouraged those who had long hoped 
to see American markets emancipated from the control of foreign 
manufacturers, to undertake the erection of a mill for the production 
of woolen fabrics. Accordingly in 1794 the first woolen mill in 
the United States was built at By field, and set in operation in 1795. 
Up to this time wool was carded and spun in the family and woven 
on rude hand looms made by the local carpenter. In a few places 
small shops for carding wool had been started, and where such 
shops existed, the farmers' wives usually sent their wool to them to 
be carded ; but for the most part all the processes of converting the 
raw material into cloth suitable for wearing apparel for the family 
were performed in the household. The establishment of mills for the 
manufacture of the great staples cotton and wool was hailed with joy 
by the people, as a forerunner of prosperity to the infant republic. 

The erection of the first woolen mill, we are told, was considered 
an important event, jand awakened a widespread curiosity to see the 
wonderful machinery in operation. An entrance fee was charged, in 
spite of which t the mill was often thronged. "That first winter," 
wrote a lady of the day, "sleighing parties came from all the adjacent 
towns, and as distant as Uampstead and Derry in New Hampshire. 
Row after row of sleighs passed over Crane-neck hill, enlivening the 
bright cold days by the joyous tones of their merry bells. Never 
shall I forget the awe with which I entered what then appeared the

vast and imposing edifice. The large drums that carried the bands 
on the lower floor, coupled with the novel noise and hum, increased 
liiis awe, but when I reached the second floor, where picking, card- 
togr, spinning and weaving were in process, my amazement became 
complete." 22 

The question of the manufacture of various articles for which 
the people were dependent upon the foreigner had been agitated 
from the moment that peace was declared, and every attempt at man- *f- 

ufacture proclaimed with joy. To use such articles in preference to 
those imported was regarded as a patriotic duty. Said the Massachu- 
setts Centinel, "It must give pleasure to every patriot to hear of 
preference and encouragement be*ng given to the manufactures of 
our country by its most exalted citizens. We have recently mentioned 
several instances wherein this has been the case." From this time 
the increase in manufactures was rapid. Iron, earthenware, glass? 
paper, duck, cordage, bagging, and many other articles were produced, 
Bind found a remunerative market at home. Fine Merino sheep were 
imported and their fleeces used ;n the manufacture of the higher 
grades of cloth ; indeed, President Madison, on his inauguration, took 
pride in displaying his suit of fine American broadcloth, which was 
made by Schofield, the first woolen manufacturer in New England. 

A considerable impetus was given to trade by the French Revo- 
lution, which enabled American shipping to find profitable employ- 
ment in carrying our agricultural products abroad. The growth and 
prosperity of the country for a number of years exceeded the antici- 
pation of the wisest men. Fortunes were made in trade ; towns 
sprang up and grew with a rapidity unknown in older countries, and 
England began to realize how much she had lost by her unwise treat- 
ment of the American Colonies. Engaged, however, in an exhaust- 
ive war with France, with whom her former colonies were unduly in 
sympathy on account of her alliance with them during the Revolution? 
*he could only show her elm grin by arbitrary acts which were a 
source of constant irritation to Americans. Especially was she em- 
bittered against her late subjects on account of their resentment of 
her aggressions while submitting with but faint protests to those of 
their former allies. She realized, as they perhaps did not at the time, 
«ut which they soon had occasion to learn, that the action of France 
Hi their behalf sprang wholly from a desire to injure her, and that 
the French really had no more friendship for Americans than for 
Englishmen. It was but natural that Americans should desire to

106 New England. [July 

maintain friendship with the people who had aided them in their time 
of need, and that they should go farther in doing so than with those 
with whom they had been at war and whose oppressive rule was still 
fresh in their memories. Besides* France to them was engaged in a 
struggle like their own ; and though her treatment of them was exas- 
perating, they patiently waited for her to rectify it. The reason for 
this difference of attitude towards them and the French, Englishmen 
would not see, and they made their resentment apparent in many 
ways, one of the most exasperating of which was the stopping of. 
American ships at sea, and the seizing of their men as subjects of 
the British Crown. Affairs became daily more complicated, both 
with France and England. The former issued her arbitrary decrees, 
and the latter her orders in Council, to which America responded by 
the act of Embargo in December 1807, and the non-intercourse act 
in 1809. It was plain to observing men, that another war with Eng- 
land was necessary to settle finally the question of the independence 
of the United States as a nation, and the war of 1812 resulted. The 
effect of the war on manufactures had not been foreseen. With the 
channels of trade closed to England, and the tariff doubled on all 
foreign importations in order to increase the revenue for the support 
of the war, an active market was created for American wares, thereby 
quickening industrial enterprise. Manufactories sprang up in town 
and hamlet. In 1803 there were but three cotton mills in the country. 
These had increased in 1809 to sixty-two with 3,000 spindles. When 
the war began it was estimated that 80, 000 spindles were in opera- 
tion; when it closed, three years later, we are told that they had in- 
creased to 500, 000. In 1805 one thousand bales of cotton were 
sufficient to supply the demand. In 1815 the consumption is stated 
to have been ninety thousand bales. 

With the close of Uie war with England and the resumption of trade 
relations this short season of prosperity came to an end. An influx 
of foreign goods at once overstocked the markets, and factory after 
factory was obliged to discharge its operatives and close its doors. 
In the hurry to get into operation, many mills had been poorly built 
and poorly equipped with machinery, hence they could not success- 
fully compete with the well equipped mills of England. The distress 
-among manufacturers was great and they applied to Congress for re- 
lief. A minimum duty of six and a quarter cents a yard was laid 
upon cotton cloths, which afforded some relief. With the woolen in- 
dustry and indeed with most others, the experience was the same. 
The value of the product of the woolen mills of New England is said 



903] New England. 107 

ilf t, 


5 have been in 1810 $4,000,000, and at the close of the war $15,000,- 
00. Nothing but a protective tariff could save New England manu- 
icturers from ruin, and Congress wisely came to their relief. The 
Jtimate result was improved machinery, improved methods of manu- 
facture, and a decreased cost of production. To Lowell was the 
ouutry indebted for the famous minimum duty on cotton cloth of six 
nd a quarter cents a 3 T ard. After the peace, when our industries 
rere paralyzed, he hastened to Washington to urge upon our legisla- 
3rs the necessity of protection, and by his urgent appeals to southern 
Congressmen to legislate in the interests of their constituents, the 
otton planters of the South, secured their aid and the adoption of 
is views. New England was by no means united in favor of such a 


leasure, owing to her commercial interests. When Lowell made the 
ptimistic prediction that cotton cloth which was then selling for 
birty-three cents would within fifty years be sold for four pence a 
ard, people smiled with incredulity, yet his prediction proved true, 
a 1829, cottons which were selling at eight and a half cents were 
cliing only ten years before for nineteen cents a yard. It had then 
upplanted the English article in the American market. Said Everett 
f Lowell, u In the great Temple of Nature, whose foundations are 
lie earth, whose pillars are the eternal hills, whose roof is the star-lit 
ky, whose organ tones are the whispering breeze and the sounding 
torins, whose architect is God, there is no ministry more sacred than 
aat of the Intelligent Mechanic." 
To her manufacturing industries is New England indebted for a 
rowth and prosperity unprecedented in the annals of any country, 
inee it has taken place within the short period of three score and ten 
ears, the scriptural limit of a human life. Nashua was but little 
lore than a clearing in 1823. Fall River began to grow from a vil- 
^ge in 1812 to a town of importance in 1830. Lowell, which was 
amed from the inventor of the power loom and earnest advocate of 
rotection, dates its growth from 1824, and Manchester several years 

And yet we may well pause and consider what has been or is likely 
J be the influence of great mill towns, with their heterogeneous pop- 
ations, upon New England life and character. While, in accord- 
ace with the spirit which has always animated New England, she 
&s persistently brought educational and moral influences to bear 
pou the ignorant and often vicious hordes which have been poured 
upon her, influences which have in a marked manner modified 
•id improved those who have been subjected to them, it must be

acknowledged that she has suffered by the admixture of discordant 
elements. Especially does this appear in the large manufacturing 
towns and cities, in which the emigrant finds a soil congenial to his 
debased condition. Some moralists have questioned whether her 
increase of material wealth, giving full weight to the great advantages 
which belong to it, has compensated New England for the deteriora- 
tion of her population through unrestricted immigration. While within 
limits we may assume the affirmative in the debate, it is prudent not 
to go too far and advocate turning our bright and well ordered New 
England villages, inhabited by fairly educated, industrious and frugal 
people, into great mill towns, thronged with ignorant and turbulent 
foreigners, subject to strikes and lockouts, with all the misery and 
suffering flowing therefrom. Yet probably there is not a village in 
New England, however happily situated, whose people are not am- 
bitious to make it a mill town. The encouragement of small indus- 
trial enterprises in such towns, managed and carried on by their 
people, is unquestionably desirable, and might lead perhaps to a 
better condition of society at large than the prevalent system, which 
aims to concentrate industrial enterprise in a few large centers. Hap- 
pily the typical New England village, [clean and sweet, with its white 
church spire and school and God-fearing, industrious people, "slow," 
perhaps, in the parlance of the unwise, is still an institution in New 
England, and its good influence is felt in the great centers of industry 
and trade through the young men whom it sends to them. 


Looking at the United States today we see them industrially inde- 
pendent of the world, and a formidable competitor in almost every 
branch of manufacturing industry which human genius has created. 
No undertaking is too formidable for the American mechanic to under- 
take. He can construct a Corliss engine to move the machinery of 
a world's exposition, or a Waltham watch the size of a nickel, both 
of which will perform their work with the nicest accuracy. Yet it is 
not too much to claim that to New England are the United States 
indebted for this supremacy. But for the energy, ingenuity and 
perseverance of New England men, they would still be in bondage to 
the mill masters of the old world. But while she has led in manu- 
facturing, she has not been behind in other industries, in commerce, 
in agriculture and the fisheries. With an ungenerous soil yielding 
but a scanty harvest to the severest toil, she has sustained a hardy 
population, wnich for intelligence and virtue cannot be matched by 
the agricultural population of any other country, while in commerce 
and the fisheries she must always maintain an important position in

tibe great union of states to which she is a natural gateway. Her 
ijjief pride, however, is in her educational institutions. Her found- 
ry though surrounded all their lives by the greatest perils and 
soaipeiled to endure the severest hardships, never for a moment lost 
tkjht of the fact that education is the surest foundation upon which 
;o found a state, and in laying this foundation they slacked not their 
iijtud. Within six years after Winthrop's landing on Massachusetts 
m\ it was determined to found a college, and an appropriation, large 
'orjthe time, was made to begin the undertaking, of which Harvard 
University is the result. Perhaps the most ^important part of the 
m*l of the early New Englander was, that every member of the 
Commonwealth to be worthy of enjoying its benefits, should be 

ducated ; hence a public school system such as the world had never j 

mown, and which today is the best to be found on the globe, 
[hroughout New England every village and hamlet has its public 
chool, and it is significant as exhibiting the spirit which has always 
kmiinated New England, to contrast the reply made in 1670 by the 
Governor of Connecticut with that of the Governor of Virginia, 
risen they were asked by the Commissioners of foreign plantations, 
ilsat public instruction was maintained in their respective colonies. 
»kl the Governor of Virginia, echoing an old world sentiment, "I 
liank God there are no free schools nor printing, and I hope we 
ball not have these hundred years," while the New England Gov- 
fnor replied, "One fourth of the annual revenue of the colony is 
lid out in maintaining free schools for the education of our chil- 
Pen. It is this broad and enlightened spirit that has made New 
^gland what she is, and which, carried by her sons to the remotest 
►arts of the union, has founded intelligent communities like her own, 
'here school and college and "printing" which Governor Berkeley so 
hhorred, are regarded as essentials of civilization. 

When we go back to the beginnings of New England and read in 
»n»dford's Journal, which we have lately recovered, how he and his 
lUie company landed "in a hideous & desolate wildernes, full of 
r il«l beasts & willd men" with "little solace or content in respecteof 
*'Y outward objects," with "no friends to wellcome them, nor inns 
^> eutertaine or refresh their weather beaten bodys, no houses or 

uch less townes to repaire too, to seeke for succoure," and compare 
*e scene which he thus summons before our mental vision with what 
ur eyes behold today in New England — her splendid cities, the 
kode of wealth and learning ; her magnificent churches, schools 
iki colleges ; her busy factories and workshops ; her waterways, 



New England. 

coursed by unnumbered keels ; her many railroads, binding together 
in a common interest city, village and hamlet ; we may well pardon 
the New Englander if he entertains a reasonable degree of pride in 
the growth and prosperity of the land of his forefathers, the Pilgrim 
and the Puritan. It has been said by some effeminate souls, to 
whom her brusque and stimulating climate is an offence, that New 
England is a good country from which to emigrate, but such men 
are unable to appreciate her true worth. They who are capable of 
understanding and appreciating her, believe her to be the land of 
lands in which to live and to die.

Savage says of Ambrose Boaden that he was of Scarborough, Me., 
1658, and was killed by Indians probably in Oct., 1G75. He also 
states he had a son Ambrose of Scarborough in 1658. 

In 1750 the heirs of Ambrose Bowden brought suit against John 


Rackley or Rackliff, Benj. Haskins and Robert Hasty, all of Scarbo- 
rough, for trespass, etc., to secure 3/8 of 225 acres and of 25 acres at 
Scarborough and Spurwink [No. 75,511] which suit failed, the de- 
fendants on an appeal obtaining execution 25 April, 1753. The pa- 
pers are in Suffolk files No. 69,418, etc. and the depositions present 
an excellent pedigree of the family for three generations. 

There had been a prior dispute over Bowden's land, for, under date 
of 30 July, 1664, Samuel Oakman, set. 34, testifies that the land 
now in controversy between Michael Maddiver and John Finnie, 
Ambrose Boden, Jr., had quiet possession of eleven years since and that 
about four years before Michael Maddiver came there to dwell, and 
John Finney has had possession seven years. Also that six or seven 
years since Ambrose Boden, Jr., was helping him in haying and 
there came to Boden Judith Maddiver, Michael's wife, and Andrew 
Alger, bringing a compass and set out the bounds between Boden 
and Maddiver. 

Samuel Libbie, of Scarborough, deposes in 1752, set. 63, that he 
came to live in Scarborough thirty five years past next July, au^ 
after he came saw William Michal and wife living on the land in 
controversy and some time after I came John Finney and his wife 
came from Kittery and lived with Michal all the time they lived and 
were buried on that land. Michal's widow, now wife of Benjamin 
Haskins, has had possession since his death. 

Other deponents were John M c Kinney, a?t. 68 in 1752, Jeremiah 
Jordan set. 64, and Mary Jordan set. between 80 and 90. 

Deborah Jones deposes 5 June, 1752, at York, aet. between 80 
and 90, that John Finney above 60 years ago lived on west side and 
Ambrose Boden on the other side of the creek until they were 
driven off. 

Simpson Boden deposes, 1 Jnne, 1752, living more than 30 miles 
from York, aet. 53, that in Oct., 1727, with his father John Boden

father bought of Robert Jordan. A creek divided her father's land 
from Kendalls. Her uncle Jinny possessed a small parcell of land 
adjoining her father's. Her father held the land till about 1700 
when he was driven off by the Indians. She had a brother Jonathan, 
who was father of Tabitha Ball of Marblehead, widow, a brother 
Ambrose Boden who was the father of Benjamin Boden, Lydia Stacy, 
Ambrose Boden, deceased, Mary Homan, and Elizabeth Furnis de-

Nicholas Edgecomb was son of John Edgecomb who retired to 
^demand was taxed there in 1700, and grandson of Nicholas Edge- 
tomb of W.inter. Island. 1638-43. Nicholas Edgecomb, Sr., died at 
&acoinl681. He married Wilmot Randall in 1C42 or 1643. See 
*rew lawny Papers. 





Mordecai Larcom, Sr., married about 1654/5, Elizabeth, late 
widow of William Clark of Ipswich. A warrant is preserved in 
Essex County Court papers addressed to the constable at Bass River 
in 1670, to arrest John Clark, Mordecai Larcom's son in law, for at- 
tempting "murther on the Lord's day in sermon time, in thrusting a 
knife against the ribs of Justin John, servant to Jacob Bandy.'' 
From depositions it appears that John Clark was born about 1643 
and that he had a brother Thomas, born about 1638/9. Mordecai 
Larcom's wife in 1673 testifies she was about 40 years old. 
She was step mother of John Clark. 

John Clark had a son Cornelius. John sold an estate in Beverly 
to William Clark in 1705 and removed to Rochester, Mass., where 
he died in 1726. [From note of A. F. A.]

"Putnam's" Ancestral Charts 

Forms so Arranged as to Meet All Requirements 
for Recording Ancestral Lines. 


Thirty-four full-page charts are provided, together with four half-page charts 
designed to accommodate cases where the paternal record alone is known. 

At the World's Columbian Exposition the publishing company of which Mr. Putnam 
was the head received a medal and award. The exhibit was principally of a genealogi- 
cal character. Among other books and forms Putnam's Ancestral Charts were exhibited. 
The wording of the award was as follows : — 


" For charts, records, printed books, etc., exhibited to illustrate methods 
and systems employed in gathering, compiling, and printing genealogical 
and historical works. The systems are thorough and easily understood, and 
the methods of filing for reference and compiling for printing have been 
perfected to a high degree, noticeably that of Eben Putnam. * * * The 
exhibit imparts valuable information as to how ancestral and historical data 
are gathered, compiled, and printed, and is a comprehensive expose of the 
thorough methods and systems adopted by the exhibitors for the correct and 
rapid execution of such work." 



Every purchaser may submit a copy of his pedigree, when arranged in one of the 
Ancestral Charts, to Mr. Putnam, who will advise regarding apparent inaccuracies and 
extension of the pedigrees. 

Beginners in genealogy especially are advised to avail themselves of this offer, which 
may lead to suggestions of great value, as Mr. Putnam has had wide experience in gen- 
ealogical research, both in this country and Great Britain.

Genealogical Research. 

The Research Publication Company undertakes genealogical 
searches in New England, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and 
in Great Britain. The Company through its organization of 
special assistants and correspondents has unusual facilities for 
carrying on research and for executing small ordersjwith prompti- 
tude and at low cost. Reports of local agents are collated at the 
Boston office with printed or other information accessible, a feature 
which adds much to the value of the final report, with out expense 
to clients. The wants of clients receive every attention. 

Mr. Eben Putnam is associated with the Company and has entire 
charge of foreign research, as well as general direction of all 
work. Mr. John E. Bowman, also connected with the Company, 
gives especial attention to families originating in Plymouth and 
Bristol Counties and Rhode Island. 

Americans can eliminate some of the expense attached to 
foreign research by employing American searchers, or English 
agents associated with American genealogists. By so doing 
exactness in work is insured, and the American client, who often 
fails to realize the conditions under which the search is carried on, 
can feel that every effort is being made in his behalf. 

The Research Publication Company has excellent connections in 
Great Britain and can bring problems entrusted to it to the no- 
tice of specialists. For general research where no clues exist, 
and where the client is not obliged to limit his expenditure to a 
sum inadequate for the investigation, the Company is enabled to 
make a remarkably fair proposition which insures the best of 
expert service. 

Special attention is given to preparing application forms for 
membership in the patriotic and hereditary societies. 

Correspondence upon genealogical topics is welcomed.
